Our fam, Defam|Nation from Mill City, Lowell, brought fire with their latest drop, the Spring/Summer 2012 collection, ‘A Lesser Individual’ LookBook. The combination of black and white, and ‘noise’ mixed with the civil rights and riot footage positions the viewer to feel empowered. The LookBook is proof that Defam Nation is more than just a brand, but a movement of truly bettering yourselves and the ones around you.
“Focusing on the underlining beliefs of lower democracy and worship of power, ‘A Lesser Individual’ speaks for those that left the everyday to embark on purpose. Seeing through the conspiracies that lead to false dictatorship and retaliating to gain proper leadership. The cause embedded within transparent figures, represents an evil that is contained within us all.”
Spring/Summer ’12 drops this Friday the Thirteenth (04.13.12) at midnight Eastern time…Check the LookBook after the jump.
